Christmas in the post-War United States

Every year I like to check out some of the coolest Christmas displays I can find. There is no ranking and there are plenty I haven’t seen. These are some nice ones, though.

This first one looks cool, but there’s something not quite Christmasy about it, and I’m posting it to show there is a difference. I’d hire him to soup up nightclub but as a Christmas display it misses my buttons.

I mean, look at this one. Lights and projectors weren’t enough. Christchurch breaks out mild animatronics and trains and what song do they use? An AC/DC song.

The right music choice is what matters. This guy only has lights to play with (and the usual equipment to make them blink along with the music you can listen to by tuning to the right station) and it has more of a Christmas feel than what we just saw.

In this one I think he got his neighbor to join in. Whatever the case he used all that space to create something really amazing and Christmasy (except for that song asking us to watch him nae nae, whatever that means).

I wanted to end on one of those big projection mapping events. More so since laser lights seems to be the way to go in this year’s civilian displays, or at least the ones I came across. Look through previous Christmas Spotlight entries and you’ll see more home-use projection mapping from last year. This year’s entry comes from Tokyo.

Have you guys seen any amazing Christmas displays? Post them in the comments.

    My favorite Christmas Display was the house on Main Street (just down the street a little ways from Dairy Queen) in Torrington, CT, where there would be a huge display every year. That home owner also had their home all decked out for other holidays such as Easter, St. Patrick’s Day, Halloween, July 4th, etc. I’m not certain if those holiday displays still happen at that home. But the homeowner did that during the 1980s and 1990s.
